Tyres age?

If you can’t remember the last time you had your tyres changed, don’t worry: one, you’re not alone, and two, you can find the age on the sidewall of the tyre.

How to check your Tyre’s age

That series of numbers and letters stamped on the sidewall contains a lot of information. But for our purposes, it’s only the last four digits we’re interested in. These represent the week and the year in which the tyre was manufactured. For instance, 1901 would indicate that the tyre was made in the 19th week of the year 2001, 5017 would indicate that the tyre was made in the 50th week of the year 2017, and so on.

Obviously, it’s a different system for tyres made before 2000, but that’s not our concern because you aren’t driving on tyres that are over 20 years old, are you?
